Packed Frankie Z's Watches Kerry Floor Bush

This wasn't even close. Finally some guy got up and told Bush just what kind of job he was doing. For four long years the media has been too afraid to ask the tough questions. Finally someone spoke out. It was Kerry and he floored Bush.

We saw the debate at Frankie Z's. The place was packed. There were between 150-200 people. Regulars said they couldn't remember when so many people came. All the chairs were taken. Many people were standing. Several were sitting on the floor in front of the big-screen monitor.

This was an event for all of us to remember. People had a good time. We raised some much needed cash for the Battleground state fund. We told people about all the events taking place here in Illinois and in Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan. People were able to see for the first time a head-to-head confrontation between the miserable failure that is George Bush and someone who's going to be the next President of the United States.

Note, this was a joint event. In addition to all the volunteers, we had almost the entire staff of the Kerry for President Campaign -- including State Director Avis LaVelle and Finance Director Helen Marieskind. We joined together to watch our guy do a truly phenomenal job.

Thanks to everyone who came -- thanks also to waitstaff at Frankie Z's, Jen & Megan, as well as to Frankie himself. Wow! I'm speechless.
